This large piece of granite was found on the south side of the
spillway area. The granite was obviously quarried somewhere
and piled up there to prevent erosion. A vein (circled in red)
of mica with occasional monazite crystals was present on the
surface of this 41 pound rock. Efforts to reduce this rock to a
manageable size for easy transport were futile. This was one
of the hardest rocks our team has ever encountered! Notice
the white area around the red circle. This is evidence of an
hour's worth of pounding with a rock hammer and chisel.
The only thing to do was get it home in one
piece and let the "Chris Cutter" do the work!

A nice, manageable piece...
